Arrived at 11:45 for the 12:00 carver on Thursday. Not sure who was behind the bar, seemed like he was in charge. He was very friendly and welcomed us in, helping us to find the perfect table. Food was lovely, had the carvery which was spot on. Would recommend this place to anyone for a quiet meal. Coffees were beautiful... More

New manager in place (Chris) should be mentioned for his first rate attention to his customers. Sunday is a really busy day for Carvery and one of his ovens was defunct which put his whole operation under pressure. How Chris managed to avoid a full scale riot of hungry customers, including parents with Children is beyond me. It's a very... More

We as a family, have used the premises since it opened. We have found it to be warm, comfortable with good food, though the lack of staff from time to time causes a small problem.

We come to the water mead once or twice a month, the food is always fine and there is plenty of it. The staff are obviously but but could be a little friendlier.

Dropped in for lunch and had the carvery. Service was first class, prices average. However, the meat was seriously overcooked. The beef and turkey was dry, stringy and difficult to eat. The ham was OK. The vegetables were pretty good although the gravy was very salty. Overall, not really enjoyable.

We did the pub quiz here at the Watermead good fun and some good questions! There is always a carvery on which is lovely with different sizes available and on the menu is a wide range of food and drink if you don't fancy that. Service is always with a smile and the team are very friendly. Dave & Phillipa

Not a bad spot, nice enough decor, friendly staff, food ok. But seriously why the hell can parents not control their brats!! I've had 3 kids myself and went out with them to eat plenty of times, but my 3 had respect for other diners. I appreciate this is not entirely the fault of the establishment but a quiet word...

We went to The Watermead over the festive period, on arrival it had a lovely warm feel to it, staff behind the bar very friendly and accommodating. We had booked a table as there was 11 of us which in the end turned out to be 13 but not all eating, we ordered our food and said to the bar... More

Nice atmosphere. Food is basic but tasty unlike other branch pubs, steak cooked to perfection! A few side portions missing but replaced with alternatives by a very attentive young manager, beer was flat, would come again but not urgently.
